The way we work

What would you like to know?

How we build your websites

Following your instruction we send you our web design questionnaire that asks you a series of questions that captures core goals for your intended website.

Following receipt of the questionnaire we can either meet you in person or simply have a talk on the phone or via video conference. We will discuss your responses to the questionnaire and suggest ideas and concepts as to how we believe we can achieve your website goals and vision.

Then the really exciting bit happens; we begin to design some mock up designs for your website and once we are happy with a few concept designs, we send these over to you for review. You can simply select a design, or suggest some tweaks for one of the designs. Once agreed, we then get building, and send you a final proof.

Once approved, we finish the build, and send you a link to view your new site. Following the "oooh's and "aaah's" we then make your shiny new website live for the world to see!

How we create your corporate videos

Following your instruction we send you our Video requirements questionnaire, tha asks you a series of questions that captures your intended use and final output for the video.

Following receipt of the questionnaire we can either meet you in person or simply have a talk on the phone or via video conference. We will discuss your responses to the questionnaire and suggest ideas and concepts as to how we believe we can achieve your video goals and vision.

Following this we provide you with a script template (where dialogue is required) and request your initial draft. We then tweak this to accommodate any animation or motion graphic requirements, as well as explanation of scenes.

Then its movie day! We meet you at location and begin filming. The real magic happens at the editing stage, where based on your intial brief, we put your vision and message into stunning motion graphic form.

Once editing has completed, we will send you a draft for review and offer you an opportunity for tweaking and enhancement. Once all approved, we send you your final movie files in full HD 1080i MP4 files, as well as any other pre-agreed formats such as .avi or .mov. Your videos can be burnt to DVD or uploaded to web or retail monitor display.

How we capture your requirements for Corporate Photography

Following your instruction we send you our Photography requirements questionnaire,to gauge what exactly it is that your looking for. For example, do you need a series of professional images for your product range? Do you need new corporate shots of your business team to go with your website or future publications?

Once we have understood your requirements, we can arrange a telephone call or meeting to discuss your requirements and offer suggestions to differing photography techniques, e.g. reportage, candids or modern artistic.

Then comes the day of the photo shoot, with our full mobile studio, we can bring everything to you, or we can source a location. We always approach photography in an informal manner and unobtrusive manner. It is important for us that you are comfortable, relaxed and that you enjoy the experience. If your enjoying it, the images will be that much better.

Following the photoshoot we begin editing all images, so that all are consistent, and vibrant. Post editing all images are provided to you in high quality JPG format via email or published on DVD.

How we deliver your vision for artwork and printed media

Whether you are looking for new business cards, a new logo design, marketing brochures, exhibition banners or even a restaurant menu, we can design it all. Upon your instruction, we discuss and agree the overall concept, colours and graphical requirements you want, or you can give us a simple remit, and leave the creativity completely to us.

We begin by designing a number of concepts for you to select from, after which, we then work more accurately on your selected concept.

Once concept artwork has been finalised, we send you a final print proof by email, for you to review and check all spelling, and colours etc, meet your requirements. If not we allow some time to make changes, and tweak it until we get it just right.

Once final approval is given, depending on what you have requested, we can either simply email you the print ready artwork for you to use with your printers, or we can print and deliver for you.

How we market and manage your social network exposure

Social Network Marketing is a relatively new concept for businesses, although it has been used widely for non-corporate organisations and groups. There are also many differing methods but very few have the ability to target by region.

Following your instruction, we provide you with a Social Network questionnaire that enables us to fully understand how you currently use either Facebook, Twitter or Youtube (and soon Google+). Upon receipt of this information, we arrange a call or video conference to discuss and agree a timescale for the growth of the selected Social Network following.

Once timescale has been agreed, we get to work, by targeting groups within your selected regions that loosely fit your target audience. This effort will continue for the agreed timescale (usual effective timescale is a minimum of 4 weeks).

At the end of the agreed period, we provide your with a comprehensive analysis of growth by views, subscribers, and comments, all providing your social network with an improved presence and a larger target audience to connect too. Your report will measure a before and after snapshop, as well as daily growth.

How we manage and measure your Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

SEO has to be the internet buzz word of the last few years. The definition of Search Engine Optimisation also differs dramatically from one company to the next, which can leave many businesses some what confused as to what they should be getting.

Read the SEO service page to be explicitly clear on what you will get from the SEO service from Raw illusions:

Upon instruction of our SEO service, we will review your current website and search engine analytics to build a snapshot report of how your site ranks against the leading search engines. We then discuss with you what measures can be taken to improve your overall ranking, and clearly outline how this will be done and over what period of time.

Following this conversation, we will provide you with a detailed campaign, to enable you to be clear on what will be happening over the agreed period. This is where we then get into the geeky stuff, and carry out the SEO service and provide fortnightly or monthly reports to enable you to monitor growth and measure your return.
